Nicholas Baron's professional marimba experience includes playing onstage for the Exeter Northcott's actor-musician production of 'Macbeth', and for Theatre Alibi's 'Cobbo' UK tour.  He performs on percussion with the Welsh National Opera and BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and has several published arrangements for marimba and other percussion including the arrangements for our wedding set.

Michael Rose has won several major competitions for his work on marimba and percussion. He performs on percussion with the Welsh National Opera and the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra. He is known for his virtuosic solo marimba playing, especially for taking on large scale contemporary works.

As a duo, we have year
s of experience playing together since meeting as students at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The inspiration behind Marimba Weddings was a request from a bride for the theme from 'True Romance' at her wedding in 2008. One player could not do the item justice, so we arranged it for two players and also began exploring other duet material. Encouraged by glowing feedback, we realised that the marimba had untold potential as an instrument of wedding music; and we have been developing our repertoire and performing at weddings ever since.

As well as playing at UK weddings, we have had interest from the USA; on one occasion we were hired to provide studio recordings of our work which were played on CD at the wedding, and on another occasion our original arrangements were purchased as sheet music for a more local marimba duo to play. We have also performed at a wedding in the south of France. So, wherever you are in the world, we can help provide music for your wedding. Email us on:
